Postdoctoral position in ion channel structure/function available in the laboratory of Crina Nimigean at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City

There is an availability in the laboratory of Crina Nimigean for an enthusiastic postdoc who is interested in the molecular workings of ion channels. The successful candidate will investigate ion channel structure and mechanism with single-particle cryo-EM and functional assays such as single-channel recordings, stopped-flow fluorescence, etc. The work in the lab is generally geared towards developing a mechanistic understanding of ion channels using functional and structural techniques. The ideal candidate for this position is an ion channel electrophysiologist/biochemist who wants to gain experience in cryo-EM.

We are located at the Weill Cornell Medical College on the upper east side of Manhattan, within the vibrant and international tri-Institutional scientific community, which is comprised of Rockefeller University, Memorial Sloan Kettering and Weill Cornell. We have screening electron microscopes on site, within the newly established cryo-EM core facility at Cornell, and we have full access to state-of-the-art Titan Krios microscopes for high resolution data collection at the New York Structural Biology Center.

Qualifications and experience: Candidates should hold a Ph.D. and have a solid background in biophysics, ion channel electrophysiology, and/or protein biochemistry.  Experience with cryo-EM is thus not necessary. Excellent verbal and written English communication skills, and ability to work in close collaboration with other researchers are required.
Qualified applicants should send a cover letter, CV, and the names of three references by email to Crina Nimigean at crn2002 at med.cornell.edu<mailto:crn2002 at med.cornell.edu>.
